Slovenia have beaten Serbia so Ireland are one of the top seeds in the playoffs

Though I wonder if today's result could send Czech Rep above Ireland.

France are currently going through automatically so would that not open another spot for top seed?

Didnt FIFA change the seedings at the last minute for the 2010 world cup, and ireland got france.  They could change their minds again to get the big guns in.  dont be so sure ireland will be seeded.

So Estonia,Montengro, Turkey and Bosnia are 2nd seeds?

On paper Montengro or Estonia would be easier games.

This will be UEFA though so hopefully they are less corrupt than FIFA

They're both the same, corruption-wise.

France have drew 1-1 so they are through.
Bosnia look very good though so they would be a tough team to get.

According to UEFA, the Czech Republic have overtaken Bosnia. So our possible opponents are Turkey, Bosnia, Montenegro, or Estonia
